My name is Margaret and I am 57 years old. I am a widow and I come from Lira District in Northern Uganda but I moved to Jinja in the early 1980s. The movement of Joseph Kony and the Lord’s Resistance Army has since affected and displaced many people from my home district. I joined a beading group about 5 years ago. I have been using the money to help my daughter get treatment, as she was run over by an army truck during the war while she was hiding in the bush. Sadly, all of her limbs are crippled. The money I get from these necklaces helps me provide for her. I am very thankful for All Across Africa for buying our necklaces because this money is a huge help for my daughter and me.
